Jess vs Nat

Jessica Simpson fired back at Natalie Portman for slut shaming her over a magazine cover from way back in the day.

Jessica felt “disappointed” by what Natalie said and posted her feelings to her Instagram.

I encourage you to do the same.”

Law enforcement officials told TMZ that someone got into the singer’s unit in San Fernando Valley and made off with some guitars—about $10k worth.

Tit for Tat

After reports that Ariana Grande is slowly erasing ex-fiancé Pete Davidson from her life—in the form of covering up tattoos—new reports say Pete is doing the same.

According to Us Weekly the SNL comedian has blocked his ex on his social media and is “trying to distance himself from her narrative for his health.”

The 25-year-old’s decision to block Ariana has been confirmed by her, after she retweeted a DM she wrote to a fan saying, “I have never encouraged anything but forgiveness. I care deeply about Pete and his health and would never encourage any kind of mistreatment. I haven’t seen any of it because I’m blocked. I care about him deeply.”

Oscar Host: Kevin Hart

The Oscars had been struggling to find a host for its 2019 broadcast — but landed on Kevin Hart. Following lackluster ratings and the La La Land Best Picture snafu, A-listers aren’t clamoring for the top emcee spot.

The Hollywood Reporter says that everyone who’s anyone had turned it down, including Oprah, Justin Timberlake, Julia Louis-Drefyus, Jerry Seinfeld, and even Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as a team effort, who successfully helmed the Golden Globes a few years back.

The job requires weeks of work for a paltry low-six figures; the media, critics and fans inevitably rip the host to shreds; and the show does little to make the host more visible or famous.

In recent years, no one has done it more than twice, including Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen Degeneres, Hugh Jackman, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart. In contrast, Bob Hope did it 19 times in his heyday.

Post-Pregnancy Health Scare for Reality Star

The happiest moment in Lyrica Anderson’s life quickly turned into one of the scariest. After welcoming her child with rapper A1 into the world, the “Love & Hip Hop” star’s health quickly started to deteriorate. The new mom said she felt like she was about to die.

The couple had a baby boy named Ocean Zion Bentley.

The concert featured performances from Robin Thicke, Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani.

Kramer’s Advice for Hecklers

Michael Richards, not known for being great at handling hecklers, is dishing out advice to NBA players who are getting heckled like crazy, hoping they can learn from his mistakes.

The “Seinfeld” alum lost his cool while dealing with a heckler back in 2006, dropping some n-bombs in a tirade all caught on video. While the actor has apologized and even tried to repair his relationship with the black community, the incident has not been forgotten.

The 69-year-old told TMZ that he “didn’t handle the heckler too good” but hopes that he can shed some light for other stars dealing with the same issue. He advised others not to feed into the trash-talkers and “just remember, you’re there to entertain people. Stay with the entertainment. We need it.”

Michael played Cosmo Kramer on the hit show.

Modern Family

Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland is under fire for requesting donations to a GoFundMe page for her late 14-year-old cousin’s funeral arrangements. Her cousin was killed by a drunk driver over the weekend. The donation page was asking for $10,000, an amount social media followers were quick to point out would be easy for Hyland to cover herself. 

Hyland did give $1000 to the fund, and Modern Family co-star Ariel Winter put in $2,5000. Hyland clapped back at the detractors on Twitter, saying the haters just don’t know all the details. 

McCain Bitches Behar

The View co-host Joy Behar hijacked a tribute to George H. W. Bush on Monday, and Meghan McCain had none of it. Behar managed to dovetail the segment into a criticism of President Trump’s environmental policies. McCain snapped that she wanted to focus on President Bush — and when the women started bickering, Whoopi Goldberg threw to commercial. Onlookers say that even during the break, the women continued to have it out. Behar said she’d quit the show if McCain kept interrupting her and to “Get this bitch under control,” referring to McCain.

McCain and Behar have an icy relationship — and producers don’t see it thawing anytime soon.

For Pete’s Sake

Pete Davidson is tired of all the social media trolls. He took to Instagram to leave a lengthy (for Instagram) statement about being bullied ever since his relationship with Ariana Grande got serious, and subsequently ended. Davidson said he’s been open about his struggles with depression and suicide, yet people still exploit that. “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” he wrote. 

Cardi B Bails On Hearing

The judge in Cardi B’s strip club beatdown case has issued the rapper a stern warning: “show up to court or face getting arrested.”

While Cardi’s legal team appeared for the Monday morning hearing, the 26-year-old was no where in sight. The judge and prosecutors expressed their frustration as they had already given Cardi a 6-week extension on the case.

Cardi’s defense team also expressed their own frustration saying, they have not been able to get in touch with her directly and only found out on Thursday that the rapper had a prior commitment which would prevent her from attending the hearing.

Cardi is accused of telling her posse to attack two strip club bartenders—Jade and Baddie Gi—who she had previously accused of sleeping with her husband, Offset.

Nicki Minaj recently featured the bartenders in her music video—a big ole middle finger to Cardi.

More Drama For Tekashi69

Tekashi69 is being threatened with a lawsuit. The 22-year-old reportedly bailed on a concert—35 minutes before he was expected to perform—causing promotors to lose out on about $500k.

Back in October, Tekashi was scheduled to perform during Howard University Homecoming weekend, but bailed only to turn up a couple hundred miles away at Powerhouse in New Jersey.

According to the letter, obtained by TMZ, promotors from Hits Before Fame & DMV Events are out what they paid the rapper, loss of ticket sales and rental/marketing expenses.

There has been no comment from Tekashi’s entertainment lawyer.
